What we do
Hari Group provides advisory services to firms looking to make decisions with limited information in the healthcare space.
We have the skills and resources to conduct market, product and service evaluations globally including the emerging markets. We have extensive experience in conducting global opportunity assessments and have helped large, medium and small pharmaceutical, biotechnology and device companies around the world.
We have been in this space for over a decade and have conducted projects to support decisions around funding for early stage companies, on whether to progress an asset across phases of clinical trials, about drug licensing opportunities, on valuation of revenue streams for monetization and on pricing new products. We have also developed forecasts for hundreds of new products, including valuations for many. Hari Group directly conducts primary market research in the US, EU5, Japan, MENA and emerging markets globally. In addition, we also develop health economic evaluations – patient level microsimulation models and Markov models – to support pricing and reimbursement.
We have processes in place to provide results very rapidly to our clients with most projects taking under 4 weeks from commissioning to delivery.

High level strategy check
We will have a detailed discussion of your situation as a company and about your products in development (or in the market). Our aim will be to:
If your business or product strategy does not match with your plans – we will organize a workshop at your offices during which we will develop a set of strategic options that could help you achieve your plans for the company and your products. The key assumptions underpinning these strategic options will be identified as well. Following this, we will help you pick a strategy that maximizes your company/ product value.
At the culmination of the project, you will be provided with a report that summarizes all the findings and our strategy recommendations. The report will also include a spreadsheet model that ties in all the key assumptions behind the strategy and provides a valuation for the company or product. This dynamic model will help prioritize the criticality of the assumptions based on their impact on overall value.
We will also send you a proposal on what we could do to strengthen the key assumptions around the strategy that is recommended.
Product strategy check
After the workshop, we will provide you with a report that summarizes our findings. The report will also include a spreadsheet model that ties in all the key assumptions behind the product strategy and provides a forecast and valuation for the product. This dynamic model will visualize the key assumptions based on their impact on product value. This can be used to understand the potential value of the product to a licensor or partner also.
Along with this, we will send you a proposal outlining how we could clarify and strengthen the weak assumptions that were identified and need to be confirmed.
